Who can register ?

  • Commonwealth Government employees can register as a member. As a member, you can access all available features. You can also be a community owner and invite other members and guests to your community.
  • State government employees can register as a guest. You'll be added to the demonstration community to try out GovTEAMS, at no cost. Community owners can invite you to their communities. As a guest, you can only access features in the community you're invited to.
  • State government employees can buy a state owner account for $350 per user per annum (at least two owners are needed to create a community). As an owner, you can access all available features. You'll be able to create communities and invite other members or guests for free.

If you're a local government, private sector or Government Business Enterprise employee, you can only be invited to access a community as a guest. As a guest, you'll be able to take part in the community you have been invited to join. But you can't create communities or invite/remove members.

*If you're a contractor with an Australian Public Service email address you can register as a member.

4-step registration process

Before you start - make sure you have access to your work email and your mobile or desktop phone (this can be a personal device). You'll need these to verify your details for registration.

Registration takes about 5 minutes.

  1. Check your email 
    Enter in your work email address and we’ll send you a confirmation email, so keep an eye on your email inbox, junk and spam folders (just in case). Click confirm email or copy and paste the link into your web browser. 
  2. Set-up your account
    Read and accept the terms and conditions. Enter your details into the form and complete your account set-up.
  3. Log in
    Log-in using your new username ending in @govteams.gov.au and the password you set when setting up your account.

  4. Complete Microsoft's multi-factor authentication process
    You'll need a phone or the Microsoft authentication app on your device. The additional security verification is mandatory for all members and guests as it adds a layer of protection to the entire GovTEAMS service.

Download the Microsoft authentication app, available from your favourite app store.
